Vent Cleaning

Have you ever started up your car and got a musky smell coming from your car’s air vent? Us WORCESTER drivers are familiar with these odors. What happens is moisture accumulates in the air conditioning/heating ventilation system which then allows mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria to grow.

Depending on how bad the problem is, disinfecting and deodorizing can be a process. There are a couple of approaches AutoPro Import Repair may take to get rid of the unwanted smells. For mild situations (especially on newer vehicles), a special deodorizing disinfectant is introduced into the ventilation system. This may be an aerosol or a mist application.

The treatment destroys the offending organisms and deodorizes the system. In older vehicles, an abundant amount of mildew or other microorganisms can sometimes grow on the air conditioning evaporator which can be located in the heating/air conditioning air blend box behind the dashboard. Such cases like this AutoPro Import Repair fills the blend box with disinfecting foam that can eliminate stubborn organisms and return a fresh, clean scent. In all of this, remember your cabin air filter. This is the filter that cleans the air coming into the passenger compartment of your vehicle.

Replacing the cabin air filter can eliminate unpleasant odors. The cabin air filter is the first line of defense for WORCESTER residents. Changing the cabin air filter as needed can actually prevent further contamination problems down the road. If you are experiencing any unusual odors, sounds, vibrations, etc., talk with your friendly and knowledgeable AutoPro Import Repair service adviser. He can recommend the next steps to discover what the is and what it will take to set it right.
